If you're looking for a quiet, reasonably priced and secluded place in the hills, this is the right hotel. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed every bit of it. The staff is very friendly and helpful in organizing drivers. The view is fantastic and the food is awesome!

I was originally booked for one night at this lovely gem and decided to extend my visit by one day. Accommodations were perfect for my needs and the food was good. The staff were lovely and extremely hospital. Being a single female traveler I felt safe and comfortable. Definitely plan to return.

Lovely balcony rooms, which look out over the town if you lean your head a bit. Friendly family team run this place. The rooms are really large with showers and well furnished. Wildlife and strays run across the roof but it's all a pleasant experience. The hotel is in what feels like a converted house. It has really decent little...

We had a terrific evening here. Nestled in the hills above Kandy, wonderfully peaceful full of wildlife--that doesn't keep you up all night. The room was nice, isolated from others with a balcony and comfortable chairs overlooking the city below. A/C present and worked fine. Also had a ceiling fan as a bonus. Staff were terrific--friendly, prompt, happy to assist...

Yes, the road to the hotel is winding. Yes, the staff are friendly and accommodating. Yes, the room, though small, was clean. But, no, it is not air conditioned - at least room number five is not. And there are mosquitos so one can't keep the windows open. So, sleeping is a very hot experience.

A wonderful little guesthouse in the hills away from the hustle and bustle of Kandy. Getting here involved a beautiful, adventurous ride up the hill with a beautiful view of the valley below. One of the highlights was a lovely pool which was cleaned every morning and so inviting on a hot Sri Lankan Day. The owner, Manager and staff...
